>>> sandy strikes. the historic superstorm lives up to its billing as it crashes ashore the east coast causing chaos with deadly results. >> we knew that this was going to be a very dangerous storm. and the storm has met our expect expectations. and the worst of the weather has come. >> the powerful system punishes the coastline with record-breaking storm surges. >> we had waves as high as light poles down on the boardwalk. >> leaving millions in the dark and stranding travelers from coast to coast. >> sounds like i'm going to be captain all the way through. >> the storm knocking the final days of the presidential campaign offcourse. >> it's affected a lot of families. >> i think it will take a long time for us to clean up. >> this is the "cbs morning news" for tuesday, october 30, 2012. >>> good morning. good to be with us. i'm terrell brown. we begin with sandy, no longer a hurricane. she's now a post-tropical cyclone. still doing damage as she moves inland. so far the mega storm has killed 16 people in seven states. an estimated 5.7 million people are without power and it coul
on the latest here on sandy. we are now calling this a superstorm. it's no longer a hurricane. lost that characteristic yesterday. the national hurricane center wrote last advisory, 11 p.m. advisory last night. it is now inland. necessity have relegated that to local national weather service offices. take a look at the radar. very impressive. heavy rain bands will be coming in, and this is why we're still dealing with the dangerous part of the storm here dealing with gusty winds, heavy rainfall and of course the tide cycles still coming in. we have high tide coming up at 9:00. that could cause additional coastal flooding as we get closer to that. on the back side of this, we have blizzard warnings flying for the mountains of west virginia into tennessee. virginia getting in on that. parts of kentucky. still gusting anywhere from 45 to 50 mile an hour. that's dangerous stuff. you do not want to be out when winds are gusting that high because there are going to be flying projectiles coming at you with wind speeds that high. we're not talking this. this, absolutely. this part is done.
in the wake of the superstorm sandy. the ocean also starting to rage, starting to pick up. it's high tide right now, about 9:00 p.m. when it began -- 9:00 a.m., pardon me. so we're starting so tee -- to see these waves roll in. the good news is there is still several feet of sand still between the edge of the seawall and the ocean there, so not any flooding concern at this time or no longer a concern. we have some good news about the folks that remain in the downtown area where the power had been preemptively shut off, that has now been restored, so the power back on. it's very cold, so likely warming up there anybody who did remain in their homes. now, the pier, the fishing pier, we know took some severe damage. a good chunk of it at the end there destroyed. we also know that fager's island restaurant, there's a pier off of that with a landmark gazebo, that gazebo is gone, unfortunately. there's also plenty of flooding damage. the downtown area remains shut down, you cannot travel on the roads between 62nd street and the inlet. they're going to reassess things. crews are out, kind of get
this superstorm sandy. it's not hyperbole. it truly is an amazing event. flooding isn't the only concern. we're also watching snowfall because sandy mixed with a cold front to produce this. it's a blizzard, and it's a dangerous one. one of the reasons we have so much coverage that extends inland as well. cnn's martin savidge is in kingwood, west virginia, about 100 miles south of pittsburgh, and the snowfall there, i have been watching you all morning, it looks as though you're in the rockies. what's the expectation where you are? >> reporter: well, ashleigh, i mean the expectation is anywhere from a foot, with he clearly have that already, you can just take a look, but it could be two feet, three feet depending where you are in the upper elevations of the state of west virginia, and right now we're under a blizzard warning. pretty easy to see why. it may look like fog but this is heavy snow that's coming down. we're also dealing with very strong winds. that's why we're under a high wind warning, and then if you can believe it, we're also under a flood warning. so it's a triple whammy here.

, that allowed sandy to become the superstorm it did and also that forced it to come in land at the sharp angle that it did. because of the storm's path, strong winds were directed inland at high tide into the new york city area, into the new jersey beaches. this produced the devastating storm surge the like of which the region hasn't seen in recent memory if ever and hopefully will not see again for a long, long time. rob and paula, back to you. >> our thanks to accuweather's jim dickey. here is maybe an indication of how things are going up here in new york. do you remember that massive crane in midtown, manhattan, that was brought down by sandy's powerful wind? well, new york's mayor says he feels very good about it now. >> he might be the only one that feels good about it. the crane has been secured and all the gas and steam lines in that area have been turned off. that is to avoid a fire in the event that, if it were to come crashing down. the streets around there, closed. offices are said to be closed indefinitely. he says once the wind dies down, the mayor says, the city will find a way
